This year I participated in the Law Enforcement United Road to Hope bicycle ride. We were all issued a bracelet engraved with the name of a fallen officer. I received your bracelet. It was an honor to represent you during police week in Washington DC. I am a member of my agency's honor guard and today we had our local law enforcement memorial service. I proudly wore your bracelet during our ceremony. Night Marshall Williams, you may be gone, but you are not forgotten. Thank you for your service and may you rest easy.
